Local author, Christine Evelyn Volker will discuss her debut mystery, Venetian Blood: Murder in a Sensuous City, and sell copies. Kirkus Reviews calls it, "A riveting whodunit that makes full use of its dramatic setting." Struggling to forget a crumbling marriage, Anna Lucia Lottol travels to Venice to visit an old friend. But instead of finding solace she is dragged into the police station and accused of murdering a money-laundering count with whom she had a brief affair. A US Treasury officer with brains and athleticism, Anna fights to clear her name in a city of illusions, with recalcitrant characters denying what she sees and hears. Her mission stirs up a powerful foe bent on destroying her. Will she overcome her adversaries, including her deepest fears? This multi-layered work is a mystery, a personal, psychological journey, and a dark love poem to the city of Venice. After a career in finance, in the US and abroad, Christine returns to her roots in the humanities with this novel. She secured a BA and MLS from University at Albany – SUNY, and an MBA in Finance from UC Berkeley. An intrepid traveler, she lives in the Bay Area with her husband, an environmental attorney, and is writing full time.
